provocative speech from iran's president it is a challenge for the white house. what would ahmadinejad say today in the u.n. in new york? in a run up of the speech he called the united states a bully and the time of empires has come to an end. his speech comes a day after president obama spoke to the same audience trying to up the pressure over iran's nuclear program. america wants to resolve this issue and we believe there is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited that's why the united states will do what they must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >> no clear lines in the sand over the march for nuclear weapon just as iran unveiled the new drone that would in theory reach u.s. military bases. israeli leaders are pressing for a plan of action. the president also spoke about the states of the muslim world
and violence releft an entire region in turmoil. >> let us remember muslims suffered the most at the hands of extremism. on the same day our civilians were killed in benghazi a turkish police officer was murdered in istanbul only days before his wedding, more than 10 yemenis were killed in a car bomb, several afghan children were mourned by their parents days after they were killed by a suicide bomber in kabul. >> today it all comes done wn t iran. u.s. argues sanctioning in iran are having an impact. we may have different perspective on that when benjamin netanyahu addresses the u.n. >> a lot of reaction from the president's speech this morning. that's what the special report panel was talking about last night. >> liz cheney who also informally advises the romney
campaign says his speech did not assure people any real action will be taken. >> my overall sense watching the speech was that it was a lot of rhetoric punk waited by moments of what could only be called delusion. he talked about the moment we are living through in the middle east now. he said this is a real period a season of progress were his words. there was no recognition at all that any pieeace and security i the world since world war ii has come from american leadership through american military. no recognition we face a threat from islamic jihad. it was a lot of what we heard him say before. i think he did have some statements about iran. he had statements about syria. but there's no reason that i can see for people to believe it's going to be followed up by any action. he didn't take the action of bothering to meet with any world leaders while he was there. >> today on "fox & friends" they will have a lot more reaction to the president's u.n. address
from senior advisor to the romney campaign ed gillespie. before you leave the house this morning let's get the first degree weather update. maria molina has a look at the latest temperatures. >> hi patti ann and heather. we are looking at traditionally temperatures early this morning across parts of the northern plains in the 40s in rapid city. 55 right now in new york city. in cleveland we are seeing a current temperature at 61 degrees. the reason we are seeing this disparity with temperatures warmer out to the south than towards the east and cooler toward the west we have a cold front pushing eastward and this system. right now we are expecting temperatures this afternoon 77 in new york city. widespread 80s across the southeast and 90s in texas and oklahoma. well above average. still on the warm side feeling like summer even though it is already officially fall. we have areas of showers already
early this morning associated with a front across portions of new england. we had areas of sdwrdrizzle and heavier thunderstorms across parts of the plains and the midwest. some of these will produce severe weather. we will keep an eye on that. electronic art wants you to get in the game. the company is now using new 3-d technology to capture all of the drama and unpredictability of real world soccer. robert gray has more from the fox business network live with a behind the scenes look at the 13. >> good morning. electronic art is trying to make the best selling sports franchise even more life like. the soccer game scored 5 billion in sales since it debuted in 1993. the publisher is using that technology to put pro soccer players in the game. >> electronic arts is using advanced technology to make the key sports game such as 13
soccer playing more realistically and look even more like the real thing. the video game publisher is now putting pro soccer players in the game. >> the premiere league got the full 3-d make-over. they set up a special head scanning dome in new york's grand central statement to wacah the likeness of players on the british soccer side. >> they are going closer and closer to provide something that looks more like a broadcast. sometimes we get technology increases that help that along the way. other times it's incremental steps or processes such as the rig behind us. >> they use 3-d head scanning technology. the 18 cameras of the 360 degree capture of the athletes. they are hoping the technology creates a more realistic game one that sets apart the console games from the less expensive ones. ea sports is going big.
if usiit is using the scanning technology and other advancements to make the video game look more life like on the large screen that gamers and soccer stars play it on. >> it is so realistic. it is great to put it on a big screen and play with your mates. >> it is great. >> they were hap tee to update them with more life like features. >> it will be positive and gima it more accurate. >> they keep the ball rolling for the title. the publisher plans to continue scanning teams wherever and whenever they can to update the game. predictably some of them said their speed or skill level should be better rated in the game and a few even joked about ea getting their hairstyles wrong. hmmm. wonder how high my dribbling and

as we inch closer to the presidential election many polls will emerge. but are you aware of who is surveyed how many were surveyed and the margin of error. the fine print can have a major impact on the numbers. shannon has a closer look from washington. >> every day there's at least one new poll often many more. what do they all really mean? >> i know people obviously think of the poll as being forecasts but from a professional standard they are not. >> pollsters say there are limits from the information they produce. the polls capture a single moment in time not predict the future. no two sampling groups are the same and there are methods of interpretation. there is an across the board agreement the 2012 electorate will be different than 2008 with younger minority voters lessen thus i can't say tick and less likely to show up this time around. >> it is true 2012 will be
different than 2008 but it's also true that if you try to base your 2008 models off of 2004 that wouldn't enforce either. >> polling operations first on putting together a demographic sap pell of what we know things like gender, race and income levels. once that's set pollsters ask reupon dents about which party they knefeel most aligned with their party registration. they have been able to quantify a shift of independents in the democratic column but on a lbit of a roller-coaster ride with president obama. giving him high approval ratings but then... >> now we are at a point while most unaffiliated voter doss not approve the president their hostility isn't as strong as it was a year ago. >> september polling numbers are notoriously volatile with the october debate still to come. while the discussion continues
about whether america's party preference shifted or whether too many democrats are being included in recent party sampling the gop should use the recent less ideal numbers to their advantage. >> if i were a republican i would look at it as a warning sign. you have time to do something about it. if you start to deny, denying does not change the problem. >> what's the impact of the various poll numbers? tone another's willingness to give and volunteers excitement about showing up to make calls and go door to door. things that could make all of the difference in the presidential race as tight as this year's. earlier in the show we asked you to brew on this. a canadian father actually admits that he likes his one son over the other. he even blogged about his favoritism do you secretly have a favorite child? >> katie tweeted us i don't have a favorite. there are definitely days that i
favor one over the other due to their behavior that day. >> jim from tennessee e-mailed us if you are a parent or grandparent with multiple children or grandchildren. you will have favorites you will never admit it to any of them and you will learn to treat them equally. that's the key, not to tell them. >> stan tweets definitely not, but when our three were teens at the same time we had days when we disliked them equally. >> oh the teen phase. thank you to everyone who responded. 47 after the hour. it's the story everyone is still talking about. it has even gone viral. ♪ >> those replacement reps from the packers sea talk game getting a lot of heat. there are other incidents as well. can the nfl be held legally

responsible by any of these groups let's ask criminal defense attorney and fox news contributor arthur adidala. let's look at towns who prophet. the mayor of green bay called an official complaint with the commissioner saying his town will maketake a huge hit they ao disgusted with the refs they are not going to come. >> if the fans actually stop coming to the games that will settle this in five seconds. any one can bring a lawsuit. any one should start a lawsuit because they will be all over the place. whether they would win i highly doubt it. they can run their business anyway they like. it is knotted like the teacher strike where there is a right to having public education. you are paying taxes to have
those teachers teach your children. here it is a private business. same way the light bulb can can go on strike. we can't sue the light bulb company to hire the best makers. >> they are not on strike they are being locked out. do the refs themselves have a case they are not being paid for the games they are not allowed to work at? >> they are being lockout because they refuse to work. pension verses 401 k's. they can go work. they can say okay we accept what you are saying. scab rats are working. years ago in the 1980s they locked out the football players and people across the picket line. they are saying you have to work under these royals. >> the fans many buy season tickets expecting a certain level of officiating. is it false advertising?
do they have a case? >> i would say this play with green bay is the best evidence they have. otherwise it is so subjective. you will see when the new refs come in the first blown call they have the scabs were better than the regular refs it would be hard for a judge or a jury to say except for that one play that league wide the officiating has been so horrible that the fans have been really ripped off. >> the players they rely on penalty calls to protect them against overly aggressive players. there was a helmet to helmet hit last week that sen one to the hospital. they are worried players are going to get injured because of the bad off fish yags. >> could a player come out and file a lawsuit? yes. do i think they would be successful at thend? i don't. it is too subjective. didn't get to whether they are complain if they don't make it to the playoffs.
>> i am being told i got to wrap. 5 before the hour. frisbee, catch and soccer. some of the fun things people like to do at parks. one town's mayor putting a bean on those activities. we will tell you about that. word of the day. we will have the answer coming up. ♪ my life begins today ♪ ♪ fly by night away from here ♪ ♪ change my life again ♪ ♪ fly by night, goodbye my dear ♪ ♪ my ship isn't coming ♪ and i just can't pretend oww! ♪ [ male announcer ] careful, you're no longer invisible in a midsize sedan. the volkswagen passat. the 2012 motor trend car of the year. that's the power of german engineering.
